Description

The Kerr black hole in gravity, and its single copy $\sqrt{\rm Kerr}$ in gauge theory, are very special spinning objects. Both are intimately connected to on-shell scattering amplitudes for particles with spin. In this talk I will show how insights from such amplitudes can lead to new, complex perspectives on the classical dynamics of these solutions.
